xorg crashes under heavy load?

Hey folks, what's up?

I'm just a bit confused here, is xorg deliberately coded to crash and take you to login screen when you almost completely max out your system? (Eg all ram and 100% CPU?)

I've noticed this with 10, and 11 now, and now I'm curious as of why it does this. Xorg runs fine as long as I don't put it under heavy load, But as soon as my system starts using a lot of swap xorg starts getting buggy, or gets buggy if I max out my system (I got to max out my system, if I didn't, what would be the point in having it?)

Xorg will run fine normally, and rarely crashes, and when it does. it's quite annoying, it crashed yesterday while compiling a kernel in a VM and now my PC has a dent in it.

Guess you want a log eh? here: http://fpaste.org/paste/17263

And could this be caused by the VMware version I am using? (It's newer than the current public ones)

Also, running nvidia drivers, manually installed (not rpms, I prefer the old way), and the default xorg that comes with them. (Current stable driver)

Thanks :-)
